The father / son bond is one that can never be broken. Several famous actors, musicians, and politicians are fathers to only boys. It can be challenging, but also rewarding, for these famous fathers to raise their sons. And we all know that boys will be boys! Some of these famous dads became fathers the old fashioned way, while others used a surrogate mother. One famous presidential nominee is the father to five children, all of them boys.

Who is the most famous dad of only boys? Russell Crowe tops our list. Russell Crowe has two sons with Danielle Spencer: Charles Spencer (born 2003) and Tennyson Spencer (born 2006). He says that he doesn't like when tabloid reporters target his family. “Some of the things you read you get an immediate reaction to, so I've stopped reading things now,” Crowe said. “I do worry about my family though. Some people do try some nasty things to get at them and try and get a reaction from them.”

Mitt Romney has five sons with his wife Ann: Taggart (born 1970), Matthew (born 1971), Joshua (born 1975), Benjamin (born 1978) and Craig (born 1981). Usher has two sons with Tameka Foster: Usher "Cinco" Raymond V (born 2007) and Naviyd Ely Raymond (born 2008). He is also the step-father of Foster's three sons from a previous relationship.
